Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee (Hong Lim Food Centre)

$4.50 Fried Kway Teow Mee

If you are a fan of fried Char Kway Teow, you may have heard of this stall located at Hong Lim Food Centre; Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee. This stall has been mentioned many times on mainstream media such as The Straits Times, Yahoo Singapore and 8 days, and even received the Michelin Bib Gourmand award in 2018.


I visited on a weekday at around 10.30am and there was already a queue of around 10 persons in front. I waited for around 20 minutes before I received my plate of food.

There are two versions available, either $4.50 or $5.50. I ordered the $4.50 Fried Char Kway Teow

This plate of Char Kway Teow really hit all the right notes. The wok hei (smokey fragrance) added on to the sweet and salty flavour of the dish which consisted of just noodles, kway teow, cockles, bean sprouts, fishcake, egg, and pork lard. It is amazingly how these ingredients could be fried together to produce such taste. There was not even any chinese sausage to enhance the taste. The cockles may look small, but they were plump and juicy.

Even if you try to get these ingredients and fried it yourself, you would not be able to get the taste as it takes skill to cook the wok hei flavour out. Moreover, the owner added his own mixture of umami soya sauce when frying the ingredients.

I was glad that I went early at 10plus in the morning. Because by the time I finished it was around 11am and the queue had grown in size to more than 20 pax. I really like this plate of Fried Kway Teow and am glad that I managed to try it. Rating this a die die must try dish!
